    I’ve been using my LinkStation (HD-H-250) successfully for the past few years without incident. It’s hardwired to my desktop and previously linked to my work-supplied laptop for manual backups wirelessly. I just got a new laptop (HP Compaq 6910p running XP Pro) from work. It is obviously in a different workgroup from my home LAN but that’s nothing new. But for some reason I can’t map my LinkStation drive on the new laptop. It’s strange because I can ping the LinkStation and open a browser and connect to its dashboard using the LinkStation’s IP address. I’ve even set a rule in my firewall to open the LinkStation IP address so that security doesn’t block access. The error message says it can’t map the drive because the network path can’t be found. Any ideas?
